    The Oncoming Storm Ep 124: Titan Comics #2s – Alien Suckers and the People Who Love Them

    TOS logo ep 124Boy, everyone is sure talking about that Capaldi fellow aren’t they? Love him or hate him, he’s got everyone all fired up. But remember the good ol’ days? When the Doctor was all young and hot and didn’t scare you with his eyebrows? Titan Comics does. And they’ve just served us a second helping of Tennant and Smith comics, and The Oncoming Storm is here to tell you all about them!

    It’s been 2 months since The Oncoming Storm checked in on the Titan comics line, so it’s now time to check out the 2nd issues of their new Doctor Who line in episode 124! Your regular hosts Josh and Ashley once again welcome back resident comic expert Jeff to discuss these new comic adventures of the 10th and 11th Doctors. First up in The 10th Doctor #2, The Doctor and new companion Gabby finally find the source of all the spectral happenings in New York: Negative Emotion sucking, ethereal vampire things! And in the 11th Doctor #2, The Doctor and Alice visit one of the Doctor’s favorite beautiful planets… an interstellar amusement park?!? Will these second issues hold your hosts’ attention like the first issues did, or have Doctor Who comics come back to earth? And can Josh ever get over that Simon Fraser art??? The Oncoming Storm… This time, we got suckery things. Lots and Lots of Suckery things.

    The Oncoming Storm Ep 106: Emperor of the Daleks – Continuity Comics!

    TOS logo ep 106In the far off days of 1993, Doctor Who stories actually tried to mesh with each other, no matter where the stories were appearing! As hard as it is to believe, it’s true! So when Virgin introduced new companion Bernice Summerfield, Doctor Who Magazine quickly added her to the monthly comic strip. It was a golden age. Benny’s comic adventures have been ignored for too long by us, so it’s time to dive back in!

    It’s the last week in May, which means it will soon be June! And you know what that means!?! If you answered “The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield is coming out!”, then you must either work for Big Finish, or be Josh. In his excitement over the impending release, Josh has taken over the subject matter of the podcast, and it’s all Benny, all the time! This week, that means a return to the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip in the days where Benny graced it’s pages. That means it time to talk about Emperor of the Daleks, by Paul Cornell and Lee Sullivan! In a linking of continuity you wouldn’t believe, this comic shows everyone how Davros went from being arrested by Daleks to leading his own faction of Imperial Daleks! Which wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Spiridon of course! Ashley, Josh, and special guest Jeff Polier also take some time to answer what old comic concept or character they’d like see return to the strips! The Oncoming Storm… This time, we’ve got two Docs, a Daak, and the loveliest archeologist ever to grace Doctor Who!

    The Oncoming Storm Ep 103: BF # 41 – Witchy Woman

    TOS logo ep 103Another delayed episode? What will people think? Well, you might hesitate too if you had to deal with everything that the 5th Doctor has to deal with in this week’s story!

     

    Take a gaggle of cackling witches, some space mercenaries, and a quest for a relic of power, and you’ve got the basis of a standard, but potentially interesting Doctor Who story right? What if the writer added in cannibalism, beheadings, tongue extraction, and attempted rape? Still interested? In episode 103 of The Oncoming Storm, Josh, Ashley, and Sacha look at Nekromanteia by Austen Atkinson. It is not a pretty story, that much is evident. But is it any good? That’s what your hosts will attempt to find out. But first, there’s a TON of news, with lots of things coming from Big Finish, and a new exciting announcement from BBC Books! The Oncoming Storm… This time, we’ve got, well, a lot of unpleasant stuff really. But hey, at least Peri is naked in this one! Ok yeah, that kinda creeped us out too.

    The Oncoming Storm Ep 101: NA # 25 – The Reference Game

    TOS logo ep 101All Aboard the Good Ship Continuity! This week it’s the first novel by the undisputed King of Classic Doctor Who References in novels/audios, Legacy by Gary Russell! We hope you really like references!

    The week passed without incident, and everyone at The Oncoming Storm HQ is still in a good mood from last week’s celebration. Since Ashley was on his bestest behavior all week, Josh and Rachel have decided that they will let Ashley in on reviewing the next New Adventure, Legacy by Gary Russell. Ice Warriors, a return to Peladon, Alpha Centauri… You’re think Ashley’s secret diary was being reviewed! The 7th Doctor and Benny are playing Columbo as they track down a thief and murderer among Peladon’s mixture of delegates and royalty. Meanwhile on the show, Ashley lectures everyone on why the Peladon stories are great, Rachel is lost amid all the continuity, and Josh is harboring a deadly secret that could bring down the entire podcast! The Oncoming Storm… This time, we’ve got Peladon, the CIA, Goth, Deva Loka, Telos, the 3rd Doctor, Mavic Chen… er, what DON’T we have??? Oh, right. Ace.
